Natural Northeast Bodybuilding and Figure Championships
April 24, 2010
My first contest in 16 years. I had no idea what to expect. I was very pleased with how it all went. The show was well organized and very smooth. I definitely felt comfortable with this organization and had a great day at this show.
October 23, 2010 – Buffalo, NY
I may have come in a little tighter, but I didn’t feel I was at my best. Not sure if it was actual or if this contest just had a different feel from the incredible high of the first one in April. I again placed 2nd in the Middleweight Division.
The road became very clear after this contest with some great feedback from the judges. The focus would be on better conditioning and the prep for my next show began as I was enjoying tacos and burritos right after this contest ended.
2011 Natural Northeast
April 9 – Rochester, NY
April 2012 My First Pro Show. This was a great experience. I placed 3rd in this show. After this show I took a long time to plot my new goals and course of action.
2013 ….The year of Making Opportunities Happen
April 6, 2013 – Natural Northeast – My second pro show. I placed 3rd again. I hit my personal goals and also came in heavier than last year.
April 13, 2013 – DFAC New Jersey Naturally Built Classic. For the first time I trained to do back-to-back competitions. The plan had been set for many months and while I didn’t know how it would turn out, I knew I had a solid plan and followed it. I placed fourth in this show, but stood onstage with great competitors and made the most of the opportunity to meet and interact with so many great people both on and off stage.
